Visit Aurora has been growing its team of industry experts with new editions to their staff. Brian-Douglas S. Stanwood has been welcomed as the new group sales manager, playing a major role in furthering Visit Aurora’s mission to strengthen its reputation as a meetings destination.

“Brian-Douglas comes to us from a long career in hospitality, meetings, and conventions,” said Bruce Dalton, Visit Aurora president and CEO. “His prior experience in Colorado market is invaluable for serving metro-Denver clients. He’s a great addition to our sales team,” said Dalton.

Stanwood will identify and connect with meeting, convention, and association planners to drive overnight visitors to the city. “I’ve experienced first-hand the shift in Colorado’s hospitality industry and I can say without a doubt, Aurora is truly a destination on the rise,” said Stanwood. “With the introduction of the Gaylord Rockies Resort and Convention Center in 2018, we’re continuing to gain ground in Colorado’s growing meetings market.”

Stanwood’s passion for hospitality brings fifteen years of experience, including work at Event Travel Management, Renaissance Denver Hotel, Cheyenne Mountain Resort and Visit Denver.

Visit Aurora continues to expand and enhance positive presence in the meetings industry while also remaining a destination for leisure or business travel.

Diverse, extensive experience and a passion for both DC and Denver are what Lester Robinson II is bringing to Visit Denver as the new sales director, Washington DC Region. A Michigan native, Robinson has been in the DC area for 10 years and has traveled all over the country for work. Prior to joining Visit Denver, he worked with Caesar’s Entertainment in Las Vegas and Hilton Worldwide in Baltimore and Michigan.
